30 to 45 days is the golden period. now, the republican congress, particularly the leadership, they would rather walk through a furnace in a gasoline suit than do some of the things that president obama is going to want them to do just as one person, one citizen, election's over, let's get this thing together. if president obama resists the temptations in his own party to say mr. president, we've got them down, we've got our foot on their adam's apple, press down hard, don't let them up, we're going to be in for a hellacious period. if on the other hand the republicans take the attitude well, we tried to get him the last time, we are going to be intransigent, mitch mcconnell's first statement after the election of president obama was clear was not a very conciliatory statement. >> see, i don't think that the american public are going to wear any more of this from the republicans. it's not just their fault.
